Stylist On “Game Change”: Palin Didn’t Mispronounce “Jimmy Choo,” Wasn’t Giddy About Clothes

We already know that HBO film “Game Change,” which premieres Saturday, puts former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in a highly negative light, but the Alaska political figure’s campaign stylist attests that at least one unfavorable depiction of “Going Rogue” author is inaccurate.
During a Wednesday appearance on conservative station “Sarah Palin Radio,” Palin’s former stylist, Lisa Kline, who attended the “Game Change” premiere this week, said the movie includes a false portrayal of Palin’s reaction to getting a new wardrobe on the campaign trail:
“The only specific scene that I have a problem with is when Julianne as the character Sarah mispronounced Jimmy Choo. It was only a small dramatic license, but that never happened, and they also portray Sarah as having fun with the clothing and the real Sarah took it more seriously.”
Kline said she had briefly spoken with “Game Change” writer Danny Strong during his research process and that he did a solid job all-around, even though the clothes scene doesn’t represent what really happened.
“I think they were actually fair in not to devote so much time in the movie to the wardrobe and I tried to emphasize that in my meeting with him,” Kline said.
I might be the only person who was actually disappointed that Palin never mispronounced Jimmy Choos, as novice fashionistas are quite refreshing and endearing in our brand-obsessed culture. Even if she had gotten excited over her new outfits, she would have been better off demonstrating excitement than apathy, as an ungrateful air would have been used against her as well.
